Burn Survivor #KechiOkwuchi WOWS #AGT with #EdSheeran Cover!

Kechi Okwuchi blew away the audience and judges with her performance of Ed Sheeran’s 2014 single “Thinking Out Loud” on Tuesday night's episode. But it was the story of her harrowing journey that broke hearts.

As a 16-year-old, the AGT contestant was on board the 2005 Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 which crashed over Nigeria, claiming the lives of 107 passengers. Okwuchi was just one of just two survivors.

“Lying in the hospital bed with bandages from head to foot. Not being able to more or do anything else, music was my escape. And that’s why it means so much to me,” Okwuchi told AGT judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Mel B.

Tears flowed as Okwuchi, now 27, earned a standing ovation from the audience and judges (all of whom gave her a resounding “yes”). TAKE A LOOK!
